“No Bone” that’s what was written in black Sharpie marker on the bandages wrapped around her head.  The trauma team wheeled my daughter past the waiting room so quickly I had to look twice and then again. No bone? what does that mean? Did they remove her skull? It was an icy, sleeting, snowing, stormy day. The accident was bad. Ariel was brought to Nassau County Trauma Center and put on life support immediately. By the time we got to the hospital she […]

All of us are facing some type of personal challenge and this post is meant to help you, my  dear reader, face your challenges with a new outlook and a stronger mind. “The perceiving eye is weak, the observing eye is strong.”- Miyamoto Musashi The observing eye sees events, clear of distraction, exaggerations, and misconceptions. The perceiving eye sees “insurmountable obstacles” or “major setbacks”. In our own lives, how many problems seem to come from […]

We all play many roles in life, sister, brother, wife, husband, doctor, lawyer, manager, director. . .  Sometimes there are roles we want to play and other times their are roles we get to play. Taking care of a terminally ill loved one who may not be the best version of themselves due to pain, anguish and fear is not an easy role to play. My brother and his wife have taken care of my […]

Unlike those in the military, police force or competitive and professional sports, most of us are not required to have a disciplined training program every day. I have come to appreciate that no matter what you do, whether you are a graphic designer, content writer, human resource manager, executive recruiter, financial advisor or dog walker – it doesn’t matter – all of us could benefit by designing our own quality training program for life. I am […]

#1 What is the #1 Habit you can stop today that will benefit much of what you do? Stop expecting something to go wrong. Sure it is okay to have a mindset of realistic optimism, but try replacing the somewhat cynical notion of Murphy’s Law with  “Something GOOD is going to happen today.” Even just saying it makes me smile. #2 What is the #1 Habit you can start today that will benefit much of what you do?

Three new skills I want to sharpen– making bolder moves, simplifying complex problems and being more self-observant. 1. Making Bolder Moves Bigger moves usually transform into a bigger, better life and typically start by doing something frightening, like asking for a raise or increasing our fee or maybe telling someone we love them for the very first time. Bolder also gets better when you start to say no. People respect our confidence and ability to stay true to ourselves.   2. […]
